Dorothy Lane Market takes over sushi shops


Dorothy Lane Market has taken over direct control of the sushi shops that it previously leased to a subcontractor in each of its three restaurants and is vowing to take quality and selection “to the next level.”

“Our last partner was very good, but we saw the opportunity to go to the next level and increase the customer experience,” Jack Gridley, DLM’s vice president of meat and seafood, told this news outlet. “With us controlling all the ingredients, we can greatly improve the quality.”

DLM is “making a shift from a ‘market sushi’ to a more upscale sushi offering,” Gridley said. “There will be many more options and combinations available in the case, with more species of fish offered than ever before.

“We will also be using the same quality of sustainably-sourced seafood that we sell in our seafood departments. That means that the salmon used in sushi will be raised antibiotic-free, just like what we sell.

“You will also see offerings made with wild salmon, Hamachi, Unagi, mackerel, lobster, Ikura and tuna. All will be made with upgraded ingredients including our own produce and a new black rice.”

Customers will be able to special-order sushi rolls from a menu, or they can choose to build their own, Gridley said.

“There will be a constant rotation of new items each week, and we will be offering samples continuously,” the DLM vice president said. “We will offer a sushi of the week item to try to get people to try new flavors and combinations.”

DLM’s head sushi chef, Narai Jung and Lawrence Hahm are working with DLM’s sushi chefs “to teach them the style of sushi we want to offer,” Gridley said.

Dorothy Lane Market operates grocery stores in Oakwood, Washington Twp. and Springboro.
